Israel has had an umbilical cord to America since Israel became a state. Unlimited political support, material support, and massive financial support has sustained Israel and saved Israel from destruction. In spite of this, Israelis badmouth the American support and tell America to mind their own business. Just keep the weapons flowing. As a result, Israel has become an artificial place which cannot stand alone. Israel is simply a well armed gang with religious trappings. The true test of Israel as a nation is to go forward under its own power without steadying hands or training wheels. Israel should enter into the community of nations like all others do and not as the spoiled child of a super power.
